Without the ability to swim, mankind would never have the courage to raft down America’s natural network of wave pools. Embark upon aqueous adventures with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get one month of twice-weekly kids’ group swimming lessons at British Swim School (a $135 value, including $35 registration). This Groupon is valid at the following British Swim School locations:
Wading through indoor heated pools, the instructors at British Swim School teach independent swimming skills to children aged 3 months and up during 30-minute small-group lessons of up to six swimmers. Tots younger than 3 years old learn basic water-survival skills, including the back float, during the Swimboree (for kids aged 3 months–3 years) and Young Minnows sessions (for kids aged 1–3 years). Older kiddos hone structured swimming skills in Turtle One and Turtle Two classes, focusing on freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke maneuvers. British Swim School’s Shark courses enhance swimmers’ stamina and speed and instruct them in even more demanding movements, such as the butterfly stroke and the littler-known mountain-goat flail.
